Forrest General Hospital Supports Pine Belt Local During International Health Crisis

The last thing that Madison Thornton expected during her study abroad trip in Italy was a cardiac emergency that would spark a statewide effort to get her back home safe.
Madison, a Pine Belt local and Tulane University medical student, had only been in Italy for a day when she experienced a sudden cardiac episode. She was rushed to an Italian hospital. Madison and her family knew that she needed to get home as soon as possible.
With an overwhelming amount of effort from family, friends, state leaders, institutions, and Forrest General, Madison was finally brought home to the Hub City. After a 12-hour flight from Italy, with stops in Iceland and Canada, Madison safely arrived at Forrest General Hospital’s ER.
We are grateful to have provided the care and support she needed after a very long journey. We wish her a full recovery and a bright future!

We are so proud of how well these women have served our great state, and we wish them success in their future endeavors!
